Does the conversion of loft space into living space require planning permission?

Answer: There are circumstances where planning permission is not required because it is classed as ‘permitted development’. Converting loft space into living space would normally be permitted development as long as the roof line is not altered. Although planning permission is unlikely to be needed, building regulations would be required.
